Gannett’s Courier-Journal in Louisville has a good police-shooting investigation on Sunday’s page one. Unfortunately, much of it is covered by a gun sale ad.
Update: The Courier-Journal’s publisher says “this positioning was unfortunate and unintended.”
This timing of the advertisement and the decision to run the story were independent actions within different departments of The Courier-Journal; however, we should have identified the inappropriate relationship and made an adjustment.
We are reviewing our internal processes and will make adjustments to ensure we prevent this problem in the future.
* Firearms ad placement unintentional, says publisher (courier-journal.com)
* “Ghoulish” ad covers police shootings story (@ispradlin) | Page one – without the ad (newseum.org)
* More people dying in Louisville police shootings (courier-journal.com)
